Dr. Sapkin is very knowledgeable. He made me feel at ease the minute he walked through the door. Thank you for caring. He was worth the drive and wait times, which didn't seem too long (maybe about 29 minutes).
in Agoura Hills, CA |
I had never been to a rectal Dr. and was very embarrassed. He has the best bed side manor and made me feel at ease. He took care of my issue and is highly trained in his field. I would highly recommend him!
